It was difficult to decide how to quilt and embroider this block. I wanted to put the numbers and writing on it without it being backwards on the back.I decided to free motion machine embroider the numbers and the words prior to assembling the quilt sandwich.
I used the Sticky Fabri Solvy so I didn’t have to transfer the pattern to the fabric. I printed directly on the Fabri Solvy using a copier and cut it apart to place it on the block in the appropriate areas. The Solvy works great and when you are all finished with all the quilting, you just wash it out.
After finishing the numbers and words, I put assembled the quilt sandwich and I free motion quilted the rest:
- Stitched in the ditch
- Straight line stitched the ruler lines
- Spirals around the words in the solid green areas
- Border design like the other blocks
Here’s what the back looks like:
Until Next Time!
